Our expert says:
I do not agree with the principle that you should keep your carbs so low. You are already 'feeling flat' and will run out of energy to keep up your strenuous exercise programme. If you do want to lose weigh (or fat%) and build lean muscle then you need to increase your carb intake and reduce your protein intake. I would actually recommend that you contact the Department of Human Nutrition at the University of Potchefstroom because they have a section that specialises in sports nutrition. In the meanwhile click on 'Fitness' at the top of this page and then on 'Nutrition' and read the articles on 'Diets for Sportmen and women' esp the ones on carbohydrates, carbo-loading and proteins.
